2014 Santa Ema Sauvignon Gris Reserva

Itata Valley more

6/16/2016 - gout wrote: 89 points

A slightly unusal forward bouquet, but on the palate a well balanced wine with plenty of flavour - if a little short on the finish.
In summary, a good value white ( £6.99 ) which would partner food very well.

Clear & bright, muted nose, nothing complex or interesting, but at least this bottle ( one of four ) is not prematurely oxidised whereas two of the four were so Decent enough on the palate, but now drying out with little fruit. Underwhelming to say the least, particularly in view of the price.

Pale gold. Lightish style but great balance & poise. Barley sugar & tropical fruits. I found the balancing acidity just right. Will keep.

Just a hint of oak on the nose, very grapefruit/tropical flavours and a steely edge. Altogether a well made wine. Good with food.

Very barley sugar at the moment, needs more time to gain complexity.
Good potential for ageing as always with Coutet.

My last bottle. Eight years since I last tasted this wine. Still youthfull, crystal clear, straw coloured. Lovely nose, very Riesling , somewhat more mellow than previously but still a beautifully balanced wine which I guess will still age . Only 7% alcohol. A stunning wine, wish I had more.
